The Kansas City Chiefs will be missing wide receiver Kadarius Toney when they suit up to face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12.
The Kansas City Chiefs got a mixture of good news and bad news on the injury front as they wrapped up their final practice session of the week before hosting the Los Angeles Rams. Perhaps the biggest news of all, however, is that wide receiver Kadarius Toney is going to be unable to play and has been designated as out for Sunday afternoon’s matchup.
Toney left the Chiefs’ win over the Los Angeles Chargers on the road in Week 11 with a hamstring injury and it’s clearly still keeping him off the field completely. The Chiefs didn’t see him practice all week long, the only player who failed to do so this week save for an excused Chris Jones.
The Chiefs still have to be quite pleased with the immediate returns on the trade for Toney that happened at midseason with the New York Giants. The Chiefs swapped a compensatory third-round pick along with a sixth-round choice for the former first-round wide receiver, who is still under his rookie deal through the 2024 campaign.
As for other Chiefs injuries, left guard Joe Thuney has been listed as questionable for the game on Sunday against the Rams along with safety Juan Thornhill and cornerback Chris Lammons. Thuney is dealing with an ankle injury and Thornhill with a calf. If the Chiefs are able to build any sort of comfortable lead over the visiting Rams, you can expect to see the Chiefs pull either or both players quickly for the sake of long-term health—if they play at all.
That said, the Chiefs could see JuJu Smith-Schuster return after missing a game in the team’s concussion protocol. It’s also possible that Lucas Niang makes his debut this week after spending most of the last calendar year working to return from a torn patellar injury.
